Publisher's Description

In this Radio Theatre audio drama adaptation of George MacDonald's classic story, a beautiful woman known as the North Wind blows through a small village in Victorian London, and everyday lives are mysteriously enveloped by a power and a glory. Along the way, she visits a poor stable boy named Diamond and takes him with her on her journeys. At the Back of the North Wind explores the place of death in our lives, social injustice, and our deep need for love and forgiveness.

C. S. Lewis, author of the classic Chronicles of Narnia series, said of MacDonald, “What he does best is fantasy—fantasy that hovers between the allegorical and the mythopoeic. And this, in my opinion, he does better than any man. MacDonald is the greatest genius of this kind whom I know.”

    Just finished, while partially hanging up Christmas decor, listening to "At the Back of the North Wind" - George MacDonald (FOTF Radio Theater, 2005) - A children's fantasy from Victorian England about dying that influenced C.S.Lewis and Mark Twain. Is the fragile boy feverish or did he find the far country? This absorbing two hours felt only an hour. I had to stop decorating and just sat entranced by the skill of these voice actors with their British accents. Rating: Two hankies. A keeper.

    I heard a chapter of this on my radio one morning when I was going to see a friend and I enjoyed it so much that when I returned home I ordered it so I could hear the complete story.

    We listened to this during a long car trip. Our teenagers loved the story, and it set up some great discussions about the Bible and heaven. Younger children, while not grasping the entire story, will enjoy the characters and the action. I love George MacDonald's stories. The only problem with this one was the portrayal of the whiny mom...that's cause I'm the mom, and one of my mantras is "shine, not whine"!

    This is a great value! I'll be lending it out to trustworthy friends who'll return it, 'cause we'll listen to this one again a few years down the road.

    Bought this for my 7 year old granddaughter. After previewing the CD, I will wait until she is a little older before giving it to her. The subject matter is about death, and could be scarey for a young child. On a technical note, I had to adjust the audio tone on my stereo, in order to clearly hear the actors speaking. Overall, I was pleased with this purchase.

    Our family enjoyed this audio book on a long car journey. Our kids are 8, 10 and 12. My husband and I enjoyed listening to the story with them. It is a beautiful story.
